Boost Your Life With Subliminal-Messages
The U.S. Government banned them on TV and radio in 1974. They were once famously used to boost sales of popcorn by almost 60%. And today, they're the subject of numerous Derren Brown-style “mind” shows airing throughout the globe.
I'm talking, of course, about subliminal-messages.
However despite all the media hype, subliminal messages aren't just used by advertising moguls trying to get us to buy another can of coke. They can also be employed to make serious and lasting change in our own lives.
In this short article, I'm going to share a method you can use to get subliminal-messages working for you—starting tonight!
But before we begin, let's ask ourselves: what exactly are subliminal-messages?
Subliminal is defined as “below the threshold of consciousness”. Subliminal messaging refers to the act of sending messages direct to the powerful subconscious mind, the part of your brain that controls everything from memory to body temperature to providing your conscious mind with its core traits.
The most famous experiment in subliminal messaging history was conducted by pioneer Dr James Vicary, who flashed the words “I want popcorn” and “Drink more coke” in front of a movie audience for just 100-milliseconds. Nobody officially “saw” the messages—they were below the threshold of consciousness—yet popcorn sales shot up 57.8% and coke sales increased 18.1%.
The U.S. Government soon outlawed this powerful suggestion technique in advertising, yet its potential as a revolutionary self-help tool was soon realized. The power to send self-improvement commands direct to the subconscious mind was suddenly available to the masses.
But how? There are two primary ways you can actually “send” subliminal-messages. Visually, such as using the latest Subliminal Power software program (www.subliminal-power.com) to flash messages around your computer screen as you work. Or, less effectively, using sound, such as with the subliminal CDs you can order online at sites such as Subliminal-Audio.
Yet if your budget is low, there's an even cheaper way to begin putting the power of subliminal-messages to work for you!
Here's how. Begin by identifying a couple of core goals you'd like to concentrate on in your life right now. For example, you may wish to learn faster or quit smoking. Then, write that goal down as a simple, short, positive affirmation.
For example, “I am a quick learner” or “I am ready to quit smoking”. Other examples include “I invest wisely”, “My reading speed increases every day”, or “I am now more confident”.
Be careful: do not use negative terms, such as “Not” or “Don't” in your message. The subconscious does not understand such words in context and would read “I don't gain weight” as “I gain weight”. You have been warned.
Now write your affirmation, clearly and in thick black marker pen, onto a sheet of white cardboard. Create three-or-so cards, each with affirmations focusing on your core theme, and store them next to your bed with a flashlight.
Next comes the unsociable part!
We're going to catch your mind in a highly receptive state, by waking it up in the middle of the night, when the door to your subconscious is wide open.
Set your alarm clock for 3am, then go to sleep as normal. As soon as you hear the ring, turn off the alarm and—almost instinctively—pick up the affirmation cards and your flashlight. The room should be pitch black.
Next, flick the flashlight on and off very quickly a dozen times over each affirmation card. While doing this, stare at the cards. Do not consciously try to make out the words. These subliminal-messages are for the subconscious.
When you're done, simply turn off the flashlight, put down the cards and return to sleep. It will take just two minutes of your time and I guarantee you'll fall straight back into deep and restful slumber.
That's it: you've just “sent” a bundle of subliminal-messages straight to your subconscious. What follows is exciting!
After the first few nights of using this technique, most individuals report problem-solving dreams that assist in their goals or influence their decisions. Just a week later and practically all participants note a serious movement toward their core goal. Their leaning speed improves dramatically. Their nicotine addiction is cut in half.
As the change comes from within, it isn't always obvious. Yet a few weeks down the line, most individuals sit back and realize just how far they've progressed without consciously realizing it. Soon, your goals have been achieved... the messages worked. When ready, you can move onto your next set of goals by simply writing out a new set of affirmation cards.
It's a very simple system, yet remains highly powerful and terribly underused.
Most people reading this article won't try this straightforward experiment. Maybe they just don't believe it will work, or maybe they view it as being altogether too much hassle.
It's inconvenient, certainly—perhaps not as user-friendly as a piece of modern subliminal software. But you think it doesn't work? Then try it for a week, and see for yourself. Tiger Woods, Steven Speilberg, New Scientist magazine, even the U.S. Government all know the power behind-subliminal messages.
And if you don't, maybe it's about time you caught up
The method of using subliminal-messages to effect a desired result was tinder to the flame of controversy that swept the nation throughout the mid to late 20th century. Supporters raved about its potential abilities to help market products to otherwise unwilling consumers while opponents argued that it took an unfair advantage; this later led to a number of conspiracy theories that resulted in the outcome of subliminal messages being banned from public viewing.
That has not stopped the research into the subject, however. The possibility of using the simple technique of flashing a sound or an image into a person’s mind for a small fraction of a second at regular intervals to effect a tremendous change in their behavior has proven to be one that science cannot afford to ignore; however, rather than using it to market products scientists have been involved in intensive research to test the ability of this technique in correcting negative behavior.
There are many who believe that self improvement, success in losing weight, stopping smoking, quitting a drug or making a difficult decision lies not in the ability to convince the conscious mind but in the ability to convince the subconscious. The general consensus is that the subconscious has some influence over the opinions and decisions formed by the conscious mind while the conscious mind does not influence the subconscious (although this has not yet been confirmed); therefore, if techniques were used to convince the subconscious mind that it did not want to participate in a behavior the conscious mind would comply.
These techniques have not been proven; for every study which shows a positive result there is at least one more that shows no effect on the subject in question. This has not stopped retailers from attempting to exploit this still experimental therapy in order to make a profit. Every topic from losing weight to succeeding in business is now available on the market.
Is this a viable form of therapy? Is this the answer to all who have tried and failed through more traditional methods? Only time will tell.
How To Effectively Benefit From Subliminal Messaging
The science of using subliminal messaging to impact various behavior patterns is not new; however, it is largely experimental. Through the process of continuous research many retailers have developed their own strategies for successful subliminal messaging.
The belief behind this process is that by contacting and influencing the thoughts, opinions and behaviors of the subconscious scientists would be able to actively control the thoughts, opinions and behaviors of the conscious mind as well. The subconscious is believed to be the portion of the mind which stores repressed memories; that which the conscious mind has either forgotten or noticed but deemed to be inconsequential.
The human mind can only focus on so many elements at once; attempting to focus on everything that was occurring around them at any given time would slowly drive a single individual mad. Rather than succumbing to insanity at an early age the conscious mind acts as a sieve for everything that the brain sees and hears; if it is relevant to its current situation it will retain and process that information, if it deems it to be unnecessary it will allow the information to filter through into the subconscious. Perhaps the brain never truly forgets information which it has seen and heard; perhaps it is held in the subconscious all along as the conscious continues on to other subject matter. Whichever the case may be there can be no doubt that the subconscious is an extremely important part of the human psyche, capable of storing vast quantities of information and not to be disregarded.
While current research into the effectiveness of subliminal messaging is still largely inconclusive those that hold fast to the belief in its effectiveness have developed a set of guidelines which are intended to help the user get the most influence they can from the fraction of a second sounds and images they see and hear.
The belief is that since the subconscious mind can only operate in the present (hence the reason that hypnosis patients “relive” events that are pulled from their subconscious mind while they are under the influence) subliminal-messages must also be set in the present tense (“drink soda” or “call the police”, as were tried in some trial experiments).
The images should also be positive, as the subconscious may reject images that it perceives as negative. The concept behind subliminal-messages is to have the subconscious encourage the conscious to follow a particular behavior pattern, not to reject it outright.
A proper time and a place are not necessarily relevant, although a lack of other stimulus is encouraged to help the mind to focus.
Finally, patients willing to try subliminal-messages must approach the matter with an open mind. The mind can be as a steel trap, retaining an opinion in the face of all reason for sheer contrariness. While this opinion can be changed later, rather than effectively complete a trial for no reason whatsoever the patient should take all steps to ensure success as early as possible.
